First of all, this show changed it's name to Jail: Las Vegas a long time ago.The reason for the change was because in the Vegas jail they found exactly what they were looking for, a "likeable" female who pretends to care about the inmates.I have been in several jails and can tell you with absolute certainty that no one who works there cares about any inmate.They won't talk to you about anything.Implying that they care about your life and want to help you is science fiction.This show also uses the TruTV staple of having everyone freak out.They did it for Hardcore Pawn and those terrible fake towing shows, why not do it in jail?At least it's almost believable that people would freak out in jail.It's a complete lie but I can see how someone who has never been there could buy it.To top off their fakeness they even used a girl who also got busted on Bait Car.The cartoon Superjail! is a more realistic portrayal of jail life.
This is in response to: mykey accident, who said it is a complete fake
intake process. I've also been locked up at several jails including
Portland, which is one of the jails featured. Yes there are people who
freak out, scream and have fits because they got arrested. And yes,
there are some jailers, who actually do care and try to give advice to
inmates that will take it, however, the lady at the Las Vegas jail does
over do it when the cameras are on.
Like cops, they take a lot of footage that doesn't make it on air, because they want footage with uncooperative inmates as that makes for better ratings, but I do not believe that they get those inmates to act up for the cameras, as most people getting arrested would not cooperate with that unless they're guaranteed something in return. For the most part it is a fairly accurate intake process.
Ahhh.....Oh how I always wanted to see what goes on in the big
house(well, at least from the safety of my home).Fortunately the good
'ol folks who gave us Cops now present to you Jail, a new reality show
(originally on Fox Reality TV) that takes a look at the lives of the
men and women working in the slammer. A treat for TV. Nothing is
scripted; this is as real as it gets and its raw and dirty (though some
of the content is edited from its cable brethren) and hits you in the
face. Beatings, blood, innuendo, verbal confrontations are all there
for you to enjoy. You may not need High Definition to enjoy all the
bells and whistles, but it helps. Not much to say about the show, but
stick around and you'll be pleasantly entertained.(just make sure
you're not on it yourself; lest you reap the rewards of embarrassment
by your mom, dad, friends, or girl).
Thank You and Enjoy!!!
Jail is the same basic premise as Cops but after they've been locked
up. Most of the people they show on the show is when they're drunk and
belligerent and not wanting to co-operate with the officers. The show
takes place in multiple different jails all across America whether it's
in Las Vegas, Oregon, New Jersey or whatever city they happen to
feature on that episode.
A lot of times they'll show prisoners getting in fights with each other while in their holding cells.
The show originally aired on FOX Reality but now airs in syndication on SpikeTV.
